's not about benghazi, which we now know the facts are that the administration handled very, very badly. what senator lieberman said is right. this is not about a sunday morning talk show. it's not about whether or not senators mccain and others are upset at the president. if you look at her u.n. record and, more importantly, her state department record, senator albright was furious with her and put her on probation. she has a terrible record among professional diplomats in the same -- i don't know if she was a terrible desk officer from ethiopia, genocide, which is the president says is one of his greatest regrets or mistakes, those were all on his watch. if she did such a terrible job there, how can she be a secretary? >> the president has been able to rehash that old garbage that mary is talking about. they have not done so now. they are talking about trumped-up charges and old regrets and on issues that, you know, would come out in a nomination hearing if she is nominated but i would just say, as an ambassador to the u.n., she's done an excellent job. she's served our country well and pre
and senate committees after that blistering report on exactly what went wrong in benghazi, the committee headed by thomas pickering and admiral mike mullen. admiral mullen had this to say. >> while we did not find that any individual u.s. government employee engaged in willful misconduct or knowingly ignored his or her responsibilities, we did conclude that certain state department bureau level senior officials in critical positions of authority and responsibility in washington demonstrated a lack of leadership and management ability appropriate for senior ranks in their responses to security concerns posed by the special mission. >> a total of four senior state department officials have either resigned or placed on administrative leave in the wake of this report but what about secretary of state hillary clinton. she's in charge and she initially took the fall. >> i take responsibility. i'm in charge of the state department. 60,000 plus people all over the world, 275 posts. the president and the vice president certainly wouldn't be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by
on benghazi. >> i'd certainly defer to dr. gupta who is an expert on that. >> when they say, her doctors, she will be released once the medication dose has been established, what does that mean? >> in the instance of cumadin, you give the medicine, then you check certain coagulation perimeters in the blood. the dosage differs widely. it has to be tailored. and the dose adjusted. to find out what the exact correct dosage is for that patie patient. >> the other good part of the statement, and i'll read it, in all other aspects of her recovery, the secretary is making excellent progress, and we are confident she will make a full recovery. she is in good spirits, engaging with her doctors and the staff and her family. >> all of that indicates she didn't have any clinical change. also reflected in how this was discovered. different when it's discovered as a result of symptoms versus an imaging test. >> if you've had a history of deep vein thrombosis, blood clot, behind the knee for example, and now in the head, do you just got to be careful down the road, right? >> correct. i mean, there's some pr

that led to the deadly september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. an independent review board determining that security at the physician facility grossly inadequate that leaders in washington ignored repeated requests to add personnel there and after the tragedy that claimed four american lives, there was a lack of transparency, responsiveness, and leadership at the senior levels in libya, and in washington, d.c. our foreign affairs reporter elise lab bot live in washington this morning. what happens next after this report? >> well, soledad, the panel made about 29 recommendations for the state department to get working on. let me go over a few of them quickly. first of them is to strengthen security personnel for the high-threat post. one problem, the consulate relied on temporary, inexperienced staff and local militias not up to the task. they called for tighter securities at facilities and upgrades. a review of fire safety procedures. smoke inhalation killed ambassador stevens and sean smith. and in-depth checks of the threat environment. a big criticism, the state departme

. an independent panel researching what happened in benghazi on september 11th is out with its report. and its findings lay heavy blame on the state department. it cites systemic failures and deficiencies in leadership and management. the report calls benghazi security efforts grossly inadequate. no one person is singled out in a report for having ignored or violated his or her responsibilities. but before it does hone in on chastising two departments within the state department, that would be the bureau of diplomatic security and the bureau of affairs. they lacked coordination and communication to protect our mission in benghazi. the report didn't find out anything new about the attack itself. we did find out that there was no protest that sparked the ambush as we know. this was all of the work of terrorists. the report makes 29 recommendations and secretary of state clinton says she will accept them all. she says there are already some recommendations in the plan. they've started implementing those. one would
. number nine, september 11th in benghazi, libya, am was dor chris stevens and three others killed in the attack on the embassy there. american officials first insisted it was spontaneous, sparked by a protest over an anti-muslim film. the administration's response to the attack became a political hot button. number eight, no freedom here in the hermit kingdom. kim jong un took over for his father. the west hoped there would be change but there wasn't. flexing its military muscle, by place i placing aa satellite in orbit. number seven, brutality by police and private security was out in the open in south africa, where the killing of minors was captured on camera and broadcast everywhere. minors were protesting, demanding higher wages. the price they hado pay shocked the world. >>> number six, ten more years, communist party of china selected new leaders, the secretive process produced a new president, l.a. lakers fan married to a rock star. but china's foreign policies are likely to stay the same. number five, moment morsi, islamist group, became president of egypt. as his predeces
the weapons wegathered up. we saw what happened with benghazi. islamists are pouring into syria. you're right. we could have a real power vacuum. the question is you have to make a decision, where does this fit on your national interest and what sort of resources and risks are you willing to take. >> and in fact is the president backed into a corner? he says here's the red line and we see everybody marching to the red line are, puts him in kind of a tough position, doesn't it? >> yeah, look, syria is at the center of the middle east. if this thing is becomes a failed state with gases like saran, if al-qaeda like groups take it over, it will be a source of instability for the next serl decades. something has to be done now. you can't play around with this anymore. >> thank you, gentlemen. nice to have you with us this evening. >>> next, 29 days and counting for the fiscal cliff. john boehner offers up his own plan today. and the white house has already offered up their response. then later, a photo in the trayvon martin case has been released in color. we'll show it to you and a new heir to th
a quick question on susan rice. do you believe the benghazi incident disqualifies her to be secretary of state? >> it will prevent her being confirmed until the white house comes forward with the answerses to all the questions all of us have been asking. what happened on the 16th of september when she went on the talk shows and talked about blaming the attacks in benghazi on an anti-muslim trailer in the united states when, in fact, we've come to learn that intelligence people knew it was a terrorist raid and we had no explanation as to why we couldn't protect our ambassador and lost our first ambassador in the line of duty since 1979, if those questions aren't answered then there's not going to be a confirmation in my judgment. >> all right. i have to leave it there. georgia republican senator johnny isakson, thanks for coming on. >> thanks, chuck. >>> optimism over the fiscal cliff is fading in washington but not on wall street. they continue to believe a deal is coming. the market rundown is next. and from secretary of state to new york city mayor, michael bloomberg's crazy specula
so focused on susan rice on the whole benghazi incident. no one's put any emphasis on hillary clinton. is that going to help her? >> hillary clinton has been very adept at making sure she had no fingerprints on the whole benghazi fi areas ko. we have a very polarized political system where we are no longer the country where people could rally to i like ike. what you're seeing in that poll is one, a name recognition effect and two, a lot of republicans who remember the 2008 hillary clinton versus barack obama fight. barack obama won, so they liked hillary clinton. if hillary clinton had won in 2008, you would hear lots of republicans saying none of this would have happened if barack obama had won instead. if hillary clinton is the nominee in 2016, this will be an election decided by three or four percentage points. >> right. it always tightens. something happened last night. i'm curious about the other side since you're talking about 2008. marco rubio and paul ryan spoke at this dinner. these are speeches where they're trying to define who they are. how would a rubio ryan stack up agai
is now trying to establish a new base following the benghazi terror attack. the obvious fear, of course, is that the terror group will use that base to launch attacks against western targets. former un ambassador john bolton joins us. good evening, sir. is there any sort of terrific surprise out of this news? >> no. this has been a risk every since the overthrow o of gaddafhi that libya will be sufficiently destabilized that the central government could regain control and you'd have a circumstance like in somalia where there's no central government and al-qaeda and other terrorist groups could take root. i think this process has been underway for some time, and we saw its first real fan festation in -- manifestation in the attack on benghazi on september 11th. >> greta: in looking at libya, i don't know who is running the country. it's hard to negotiate the workout solutions or to do anything unless we have someone to work w. >> well, i think after the overthrow of gaddafhi, the opposition which was always a fractionated from the outset was unable to come together. the country has been
this fight and just benghazi. >> the biggest number at all is most people don't know enough about her to make up their opinion. as we know, the way politics worse is that absence two sides of a debate, one side will win. if there is one piece of information, it's all been pretty negative about her so far. i do think there is a risk for republicans regardless of whether they will say that if they proceed with a pretty ugly i think there are problems with terms of tone and how aggress he have the republicans want to be seen as going after her especially because so many attacks are over this benghazi issue and over talking points, and -- >> she had nothing -- >> look. her critics make other arguments, and you can debate the substance of that, but many terms of just sort of this is a very narrow cast discussion right now over a tv appearance. >> over one tv appearance. diversity is always an issue in the obama cabinet. just like any other administration. >> that's right. >> interestingly enough, it's been 15 years since there has been a white man as secretary of state. 15 years since we've had th
on benghazi will be released to the public on wednesday, a day ahead of hearings on the raid that took the lives of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. secretary of state clinton was given the report today but she won't testify thursday because she's recovering from a concussion. instead her deputies will do so. i sincerely hope we all finally get to the bottom of this benghazi business which continues to fester. >>> also, senator daniel inouye of hawaii passed away this afternoon at age 88. inouye was a senator for 50 years. he was a world war ii hero as well. inouye was awarded the medal of honor for actions he took in italy in 1945 as a member of the legendary 442 combat team composed entirely of japanese americans. may senator inouye rest in peace. >>> now back to some stock market work. stocks continue to discount a fiscal cliff solution of some kind. as i've suggested, they're reacting positively. how about a little optimism on that story? up next, some optimism. ...so as you can see, geico's customer satisfaction is at 97%. mmmm tasty. and cut! very good. people
to come back to work, she was looking to testify on the incident in benghazi which killed ambassador stevens and three other americans. there was a blistering report earlier this month that found lack of poor security provided by the state department and a lot of people have been looking for secretary clinton to testify. >> can we talk a little bit more about that. there had been some criticism. there were some who believe the secretary of state was not as sick as she said she was, and that she was trying to avoid testifying about benghazi. >> that's right, she was scheduled to testify, she was scheduled to come back to work and testify. and it turns out her deputies testified in her stead. and there were a lot of people, a lot of commentators who thought -- and were accusing her of faking it. there were some senators and congressmen on capitol hill that said they know she's sick, but she still needs to testify, and they didn't think the issue would be closed on until that was settled, until she spoke before congress. and i think that was heavy on her mind. there's been a lot of talk
rice wasn't on tv shortly after the benghazi attack, and not just declared u about emphatically declared that it was a result of spontaneous demonstration. i think all america as they saw her say that, couldn't believe it. people don't bring povertyars to demonstrations. >> steve: absolutely. you would think that traditionally, that would be enough to disqualify her u about the white house seems indents on pushing her and now say republicans who criticize her are doing it because she's black and a woman. >> we haven't had a white male secretary of state in 15 years. not since the incompetent mr. christopher was secretary of state. that is part of a larger landscape that i'm worried about because since 2009, we thought we had gone beyond race. but if you look at comments people are making offhandedly, everybody from samuel l. jackson to the reverend joseph lowery said white people belong in hell and just lately jamie fox joked about shooting white people, morgan freeman, it's almost as if there has been an outpouring of racial separatism and hostility. it's not a good climate. >>
hypocritica hypocritical. the second thing is, if we really want to focus on what happened in benghazi, attacking susan rice does not get to the heart of what happened in benghazi. she had nothing to do with what happened in benghazi. let's talk about the talking points if that's what they want to talk about. let's talk about the cia and whether there was a flap there with the talking points. focusing on susan rice does not get us on where we need to be on fixing the problems we have so that benghazi never occurs again. >> maria cardona and ron bonjean. thank you very much. >>> if the u.s. goes over the fiscal cliff, we'll feel it even at our airports. flights could change, and quite frankly, not in a good way. in. in fact, in a recent survey, 95% of people who tried it agreed that it relieved their headache fast. visit fastreliefchallenge.com today for a special trial offer. you know how painful heartburn can be. for fast, long lasting relief, use doctor recommended gaviscon®. only gaviscon® forms a protective barrier that helps block stomach acid from splashing up- relieving the pa

on benghazi and libya and the republican calls for more information. is there anything to be read from the fact that we have seen both president obama and secretary of state clinton go out of their way in a way to defend susan rice? is there anything we should tea leave read from that fact? >> well, chris, i think the president and secretary of state were right to defend per. these allegations are completely unfounded. they're unfair to her. she is a very talented, very effective, committed public servant. you know you know how those sunday show work when administration officials of either party go on, they're following talking points that the republican or democratic administration, whichever party's in power, has constructed and that's what susan did that morning. if any other administration official had been on the air that morning they would have said essentially more or less the same thing. i don't think the attacks are fair and she deserves a chance to be considered for any office that the president would like to appoint her to. you've seen a vigorous defense of her by the presid
strategy. in other words you get right to the edge of, you know, a benghazi wipeout or a potential real use of chemical weapons and then that drives the coalition response. i think it's highly doubtful that the qatar would take action but highly probable a calculation that involves turkey and thus nato forces were to take action if chemical weapons were to be used and i would think that despite what we may have heard about lines before, the fact is that the inside dimensions of syria are so complicated and nasty right now that you almost have to be at near use or at use of those weapons to get the kind of actions that we're talk iing about. and it really is horrible that you have to 0 wait to see the atrocity to drive this up to a higher level of action, but there are so many that are fearful of being involved in getting inside the mess that that's unfortunately where we're at. >> let's talk about what happened and also what happened yesterday but that was across the pond. secretary of state meeting with the russian counterpart, david and steve, this is both to you. david, let me start with

after a virus and the concussion and as you know was not at the benghazi hearings yesterday. we reported last thursday when susan rice withdrew that kerri was the choice. the question was timing. they didn't want to go too long, but of course there is a funeral today which kerry and the president will both be attending for senator daniel inouye. that was something else that delayed the timing. it was originally supposed to be this morning that john kerry would be nominated and that funeral won't be over until 10:00, rather about noon at the national cathedral. after that back at the white house there will be an announcement. it is not going to be what was originally contemplated, the entire national security team, cia, defense, a bit of controversy over chuck hagel. the president has been strongly considering chuck hagel for defense secretary and still is we are told. he has not backed off of that. there is fierce opposition building up, the same lobbying campaign that frankly torpedoed susan rice, and there is a lot of thought in democratic circles outside the white house, particularly,
happened in benghazi. why were requests for security turned down in this dangerous situation? but that's not a political conspiracy. that's one of the things that happen in life. >> all right, so what is interesting about this, peter, is that obviously the white house is saying al qaeda is on the run. al qaeda doesn't really sort of exist except in these small pop-up groups. then, so that's kind of the heart of the issue, which is you can't say al qaeda doesn't exist and all of a sudden have an attack by al qaeda. but are you suggesting that the intelligence community did not brief the ambassador deliberately in order to continue working their sources, their intelligence? >> the intelligence community, according to reports of how they brief the intelligence committees about this matter, took out from the unclassified talking points that susan rice used, references to a particular group called ansar al sharia. it's not links to al qaeda, more inspired by al qaeda in libya. they took the talking points out because they didn't want to tip this group off that they were basically looking at

up for all americans. >> yeah. let me talk to you both about benghazi. an independent review found failures in leadership and management at the state department in terms of the attacks on benghazi and how it was handled and everything that followed as a result. do you think this will tarnish hillary clinton's reputation at all as she leaves the administration, maria? >> i don't think that it will, randi. you know, the secretary herself is the first one to say that the buck stops with her. she has taken full responsibility for this. the state department with her at the head of it has accepted all 29 recommendations that came out of this report. she understands that there have been failures and that things need to change. and she has been the first to say that. she is going to testify next month about this. she is never one to either go back on her responsibility or to shy away if responsibility and make sure that from here on in those recommendations are accepted and that we do everything that we can to make sure that this does not happen again. so i don't think this will tarnish he
